Welcome to what I am certain will a terrific and fabulous first grade experience. I am so thankful to be your child's teacher this year. Thank you for sharing your MOST precious gift in this world with me. I know that a strong parent-teacher relationship is very important to your child's success, so let's work together and keep the communication open. I will be teaching 80% in Navajo and 20% in English.
First Grade Resources:
General Information About Class:
News/Homework: There will be a monthly list of upcoming activities your child will bring home. Check their colored folder for any other information that may be coming from the school. Some of these need a signature and need to be returned to the office.
In first grade we are not sending weekly homework. The letter in the folder explains as to the reason for this decision. There is a 3-ring binder and the folder that has a lot of information that you can help your child learn. Use these references as ideas as well as your own creative ways to make their learning fun and engaging. Remember you are the #1 teacher in your child's life and your can make all the difference in their attitude toward school!
Specials Schedule: Starting in the new year our schedule has changed from Tuesday afternoon to morning from 8:15-10:15. They are now in a 2 hour block time going to Art, Music, PE and Fit Kids. Please remember to have them wear the right kind of shoes for PE.
